How can iReset key code grand cherokee 2001 4.7 lt car was jumped started and now a key shows on dash but it wont start


All of the suggestions are great. Resetting the computer by disconnecting the battery should work. If it doesn't, you may need the antenna that fits around the ignition key slot replaced. This item sends a signal to the chip in the key and receives its "resonance" to identify the key as being valid. If this antenna is burned out, the computer can't read the key.
If you want to reset the security system (if so equipped) look here:

No SKIM BUS Message received.
possible causes:
1. Invalid SKIM key.
2.wiring harness intermittent defect.
3.PCM DEF INTERNAL PCI BUS OPEN.
4.PCM PCI BUS CIRCUIT OPEN.
The first thing I would do is check the wiring harness unplug and check for loose pins then reconnect. Hope this helps.

Chrysler sebring code p0513


P0513 stands for invalid SKIM Key. Basically it means that the "computer chip" that is in your ignition key which has a special code is not recognized by your vehcile compter (PCM). In most cases that I have come across is that either your VIN is not entered or is the incorrect VIN programmed into the PCM. Have you recently changed the PCM ? You may try another ignition key but I doubt that would work unless you are using the wrong key for the vehicle. You will need special diagnostic computer programs in order to correct this problem. Most likely your PCM will need to be "Flashed" to the VIN. This really isn't a weekend/backyard/part time mechanic fix. Hope this helps you to understand what the code is and what it means. Guessing the vehicle won't start.....

What do these code means for my pacifica p0513/p0522 car won't start? HELP PLEASE!!!!!!


P0513 is "Invalid Skim Key" The key may have damaged programing and if that is the case the dealer maybe able to reprogram that key for you (if you have 2 keys, both keys will have to be reprogramed so that they both match. Good Luck).
P0522 =Engine Oil Pressure Sensor/Switch Circuit Low Voltage.
Possible causes - Low oil level or motor mechanical fault
- Open or short oil level sensor circuit condition
- Poor oil level sensor electrical connection
- Faulty oil pressure sensor

P1685 Skim Invalid Key.

The Sentry Key Immobilizer Module contains a Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver and a microprocessor. The SKIM transmits RF signals to, and receives RF signals from the Sentry Key transponder through a tuned antenna ring integral to the SKIM housing. When the ignition switch is turned to the On position, the SKIM transmits an RF signal to the transponder in the ignition key. The SKIM then waits for an RF signal response from the transponder. If the response received identifies the key as valid, the SKIM sends a valid key message to the PCM over the PCI data bus. If the response received identifies the key as invalid, or if no response is received from the key transponder, the SKIM sends an invalid key message to the PCM. The PCM will enable or disable engine operation based upon the status of the SKIM messages.

Chrysler Concorde LXI 4 door - 2004 The car starts up and seconds after, the RPM drops and the car shuts off. The code P0513 comes up on the computer.


That is a code for an invalid skim key. If you have another skim key try it. If it does the same thing then the skim module may be bad.

Codes


p0513 invalid skim key
do you have an aftermarket alarm that is "remote start" compatible? if so, the skim is reading that the car is starting without a key, but the alarm module is allowing it to start, bypassing the skim module.


p0517 High battery temp sensor.
Either the battery is gettign to hot and/or it has a bad sensor.
